Mr. Bill Cogdill
Students took advantage of the cool morning and got together for a game of kickball.
A new sprinkler system was installed right before school started. The students are looking forward to being able to play in the grass. In the past, our playground area looked more like a sand lot. We are spreading the kids out to minimize the pressure on the fragile lawn. Despite the recent surge in temperature the lawn is trying to bounce back.
CIS students scored very will on the NeSA Writing last year in 4th grade. 80% of the students met or exceeded the standards compared to 69% of the students across the state. We are proud of our students but understand maintaining these scores is not always easy. NeSA Reading scores were closer to the state average with 79% of 3rd grade students meeting or exceeding the standards compared to 77% of the state.
This week has been a lot of fun! We have enjoyed reuniting with old friends as well as making new ones. We have also reviewed rules from the classroom to the playground. Today we reviewed bus safety. Children learned how to evacuate a bus safely! We would like to thank all the bus drivers for keeping us safe across the district.
Welcome Back to School!
We are looking forward to students arriving for the first day of school on August 15th. Students may gather with their supplies on the playground until the bell rings at 7:50. We line up by classrooms and enter the building after the Pledge and morning announcements. We begin and end our day earlier than the other buildings to help parents with pick-up and drop-off. We ask that you come to the Intermediate School first. The school day ends at 3:05 on a normal day. We do have early outs (1:15) on the August 15th & 16th.

Pre-K FAST is our preschool aged program, designed to assure that all children have a chance to enter school ready to learn and capable of achievement at their own level. This program is capable of rapidly engaging parents of young children and getting them to improve family function for the sake of their young children.
The 2nd grade students came to CIS for a visitation. They will be coming here permanently next year and wanted to see their new school. We talked about what the schedule looks like and who the teachers are. They toured the school and played on the playground. We enjoyed the visit and look forward to seeing all the students again next school year!
Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.
As part of the Greener Nebraska Project, Lucinda Mays helped our school plant some very nice trees. We are continuing to develop the North side of our building. As they mature, we will have a nice shaded area that will improve the aesthetics of the area that we can all enjoy.
Mrs. Anderson's Class planted the first tree.
